    All excellent articles but a great column by Mike Thompson.

    It’s time to stop the abuser fee debate.

    Show your emotion at the voting booth this fall.

    Until then, let’s move on to other topics.

    And yes, I am among the guilty of “abuser fee hysteria”. My only defense is that I am apparently the only person who thinks they are a fine idea.

    Mea culpa.
